Public Program - NYC
Peer2Pickle Workshop Launch

Saturday, January 12, 2019, 4:00 - 6:00 pm
291 Church Street, NYC

Artists Andrew Gryf Paterson and Agnieszka Pokrywka will launch their week-long Peer2Pickle workshops at apexart. The open, participatory workshops are an evolving series of experiments in reuse, sourcing materials from food waste and the body. Join the discussion, listen to presentations and meet with the artists. This event is free and open to the public. Sign up to reserve your seat.

For the opening week of the exhibition, artists will be conducting ongoing experiments with a do-it-with-others public practice. Workshops are drop-in and open to all. Everyone involved will contribute to the process of making.

4:00pm - Edible Paper Experiments Introduction and Demo with Andrew Gryf Paterson
5:00pm - Reuse Yourself Introduction and Demo with Agnieszka Pokrywka

Andrew Gryf Paterson (SCO/FI) is an artist-organizer, cultural producer, educator and independent researcher. He specializes in developing and leading inter/trans-disciplinary projects exploring connections between art, digital culture and science, cultural activism, ecological and sustainability movements, cultural heritage and collaborative networks. Originally from Scotland, Paterson has been most active in the past 14 years in the Baltic Sea region, based for most of the time in Helsinki, Finland. In recent years, he has been collaborating with Agnieszka Pokrywka, in Pixelache project 'Ferment Lab' activities. The overlap into food-hacking and paper-making emerged from this activity, and is an ongoing, curious experiment.

Agnieszka Pokrywka (PL/FI) is working in the spirit of decentralization, collective participation, and fermentation. These themes emerge in her work as a cultural organiser, where she re-rethinks standardised structures of creative production. She also applies these interests in multimedia and non-linear documentary storytelling. Sometimes she at least tries to make the world look better while working as a graphic and motion designer.
